Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill
Business Travel Guide
The best hotels, restaurants and activities for business travelers to the Triangle area.
North Carolina’s capital, Raleigh, and adjacent Durham and Chapel Hill comprise the three points of "the Triangle," a vibrant 13-county hub of New South culture with an Old South pedigree. The nearby communities of Morrisville and Cary also are part of the park, and nearby Pittsboro may soon be annexed. In the center of this area, the Research Triangle Park is the world's largest research park and anchors the region's fast-growing economy. Research Triangle Park was created in 1959, and today its 7,000 acres host almost 200 cutting-edge electronic and medical research firms, including Cisco Systems, GlaxoSmithKline, SAS Institute and IBM.
In addition, four major universities — Duke, North Carolina State, North Carolina Central and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill — contribute their portion to the region‘s international reputation in both the arts and the sciences. In late 2015, a $50 million redevelopment plan was announced, to include more than 300,000 square feet of public space at the heart of the park to host retail, food-and-beverage businesses and entertainment resources. The Triangle area is prepared to meet the needs of its visitors, whether they are educators, prospective college students and their parents, or captains of industry.
